Through the month of October, we’ll be celebrating GATHER at Atlantic Orchid and Garden. This is the traditional harvest time and a time for gathering, feasts, and celebration. Today, we still come together as the months turn cooler. We plant fall vegetable gardens and cook with our own produce. We invite friends and family over and begin to look toward the upcoming holidays later on in the year.

gatherEach week, we’ll be featuring a collection of recipes based on a vegetable you may have growing in your garden. The week’s recipe will be available online and free to take from our store.

We’ll also be hosting a food drive every day through October. Visit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC for more information on what you can donate, or join our virtual team and make a donation online!

And don’t forget — look for the produce we’ll be bringing in each Saturday from local farms. Let’s bring the garden into our kitchens!

We hope you enjoy!
